Advent Bible Study: Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol”, Wednesdays December 13, 20th 7:00 – 8:30 p.m., at Burford United Church. Come enjoy this timeless Christmas classic as we ponder “A Christmas Story” through the lens of scripture. What might God say to us about who we are, where we’ve come from, and where we are going as revealed in the encounters between Scrooge and the spirits? Through story, film and song we will explore what it means to wait on God this Advent. For more information, please speak to Rev. Cathy Dilts.
